How to Backup Text Messages from Sony Xperia

"Is there any way to transfer my messages to the computer? My phone is getting slower and slower, and I think that it is because the amount of space is being used up by these files. I've heard that some apps may help. But, unfortunately, my Sony Xperia Z did not come with a Google Play Store."

Well, there are some ways for you to backup SMS from a Sony Xperia phone. If you can not do it on the device, try moving your data to PC. It is also quite simple. You just need to follow this guide and will certainly make it. The first thing you need to do is downloading Sony PC Companion or Mobile Transfer. (Many Sony users have used Sony PC Companion.
